(29 March 2023) US shares have bounced in latest days because the
banking disaster has light from the headlines after a sequence of
carefully-orchestrated bailouts and buyouts. The most important indexes have
been slowly pushing their method again up in the direction of their early February
highs. Whereas the rebound has briefly placed on maintain all of the doom and
gloom discuss in regards to the economic system, we must always word that shares have mainly
moved sideways since November.
Following on my earlier examination of the usage of progressed cycles
in natal charts, I assumed we’d discover how this timing approach
can be utilized within the horoscope of the S&P 500 index. That is arguably
an important inventory index on the planet because it covers the five hundred
largest publicly-traded corporations within the US. Based in 1957, the
S&P 500 gives an indispensable window on the fluctuations in
collective sentiment that affect inventory costs.
By means of instance, we’re focusing solely on the minor progressed
chart. This development relies on the lunar month such that the
size of lunar month (29 days) is equal to at least one yr of calendar
time. The minor progressed chart solid for as we speak (March 29, 2023) is
derived from the planetary positions for February 11, 1962. The
ensuing 1:13 time compression gives a helpful bridge between the
usually fast-moving transits and far slower progressions such because the
day-for-a-year secondary progressions.
Taking a look at as we speak’s progressed chart, we will see two doubtlessly
important groupings of planets. On the high of the chart, is a
conjunction of Venus, Solar and Jupiter. That is clearly a bullish
association which can partially clarify the latest rebound in shares.
Nonetheless, we must always word that the faster-moving Solar (29 Capricorn) and
Venus (2 Aquarius) are actually clearly separating from Jupiter (26
Capricorn). This means that regardless of the bullish affect of this
triple conjunction, it’s now possible on the wane. It’s attainable that
the shut 90-degree alignment with the Moon has just lately activated
one other pulse of this bullish Venus-Solar-Jupiter vitality, nevertheless. Since
the minor progressed Moon strikes about one diploma per day, this affect
is prone to diminish pretty quickly additionally.
However the different apparent sample is the conjunction of retrograde
Mercury (16 Capricorn) with Mars (14 Capricorn) and Saturn (11
Capricorn). Mars is effectively previous Saturn now so that’s possible now not a
main affect. However since Mercury is shifting backwards it would kind an
actual conjunction with Mars within the coming weeks. The truth is, the precise
conjunction is because of happen on April 16. Since Mercury-Mars alignments
are usually bearish for shares, it’s fairly attainable that markets
might come underneath strain as soon as once more across the time of this
conjunction. The truth that each planets may also align with Pluto might
serve to amplify its damaging results.
Whereas the Mercury-Mars conjunction nonetheless has but to achieve its
theoretical most influence, we must always word that the progressed Ascendant
(11 Aries) is sq. progressed Saturn (11 Capricorn). That may be a
damaging affect that argues for some weak spot within the very close to time period.
The underside line right here is that the minor progressed chart appears to be like
more and more troublesome as we head into April. So when will the market
drop? The Mercury-Mars conjunction is inside shut sufficient vary that
costs might start to say no at any time. That stated, the likelihood
for a decline rises the nearer we get to the April 16 conjunction date.
Even in that case, it’s attainable that among the related decline
may very well happen after April 16. In that sense, the date of conjunction must be seen in probabilistic phrases.
In fact, the same old caveats apply. This minor progressed chart is
solely one in all many such derived progressed cycles and thus kind solely a
single slice of the general forecast image.
